What are you watching?
'Cause I only have eyes for you - One of the Greatest Romantic Song ever
I had bought The Busby Berkeley Collection (Footlight Parade / Gold Diggers of 1933 / Dames / Gold Diggers of 1935 / 42nd Street) (2006) set few years back,but somehow I never got time to watch it till recently.
And this Sunday I was watching Dames (1934) when I first saw " 'Cause I only have eyes for you" song and it just bowled me over with its beautiful lyrics set to lovely music and sang so well by Dick Powell.Then he goes into a dream and Busby Berkeley plays a dream-weaver completely enchanting us with this grand dazzling spectacle.And the song ends when they wake from slumber and see the train has stopped at the last station and as they get out,its raining drizzle and Dick takes his coat out and wraps it around Ruby and picks her up walking on and camera zooms out.
Dick Powell seems so friendly with his easy smile and Ruby Keeler is so simple and just like a girl next door.Music is so uplifting from the beginning of this song to the very end.I have watched this song again and again and found it delightfully sweet and blissfully romantic.If you want to get out of the hum-drum of life and get a respite from daily tensions just watch this song.Its one of those song that look absolutely beautiful in Black and white,no need of color here.
